This time-lapse movie shows elusive Mercury (m=-1.2) some 24 minutes after sunset. It was a mere 3° above Rio`s horizon while the Sun was 6° below. Its east elongation, that will be greatest for this apparition on June 23 (25.1° E), is currently at 12.3°. A Nikon CoolPix P900 camera was used for the shots, taken at 17:39 (UTC-3h). The western sky was mostly clouded as shown in the last image but fortunately a narrow gap in the clouds allowed me to get the images.
